Hello Au Naturel
Is it just me, or have you also been wearing less to no foundation, make up in general, since our lives took a u-turn, backflip (and then some), back in March?
It seems for most of you, who I’ve seen for appointments post lockdown have opted for the more au naturel approach by letting the skin breathe and replenish without caking on that new foundation you've seen endless paid ads for on Instagram.
Trends are Changing. So, is Foundation Going Out of Fashion?
As more brands move towards the "no make up, make up look" it has me intrigued to see the direction of how women and increasing numbers of men are seeking to look after their skin. Instead of purchasing a product that will not only just superficially cover those unwanted blemishes but can wreck havoc on the skins microbiome, we are becoming more aware than ever what it is we are applying to the skin.
No Make Up, Make Up Look
What Is It?
No make up, make up is basically using the bare minimum amount, focusing more on the steps of application than the number of products.
This increasing trend has been popular on fashion runways for years with Emily Ratajkowski showing us that wearing the bear minimum and showcasing natural beauty really is the next big thing!
How to Nail the Look
As work life shifts and more businesses have adapted to working from home, you may find the effort of having to put on your full face of make up for that one zoom call a waste of time and not necessary if you're sitting at your new office space... the sofa. Here's how to nail the look and feel fabulous while allowing your skin to breathe that little bit more.
Tinted Protection is the New Foundation
Switch that heavy base foundation with a factor of 15 (yes you'd actually need to use quite a few pumps of this to obtain the 15 SPF factor), for a non comedogenic (non clogging) tinted SPF with a broad spectrum of 50.
With this beautiful light coverage formula
you instantly achieve a dewy finish that will reflect and bounce light off your skin making it look younger and more youthful.
It's a win-win as you'll also be protecting yourself from the harmful UVA/UVB rays which are the number one cause of premature ageing.
Healing Your Skin and Saying Goodbye to Make Up
Regular facials, results driven skincare, looking after internal and mental health are all closely connected when it comes to how our skin responds and what shows up.
The most rewarding part of being a skin specialist is seeing my clients confidence skyrocket when they start to see results with there facial plans. Consistency is key when it comes to starting out on your skin journey for the results you're looking to achieve. It's the same as striving to reach your fitness goals, having a gym membership and not turning up will achieve little to zero results.
If you're wanting to get to a place where you feel comfortable going without make up but want to treat those pesky pimples, underlying congestion or post summer pigmentation then schedule yourself an appointment to see us for a non judgemental, thorough consultation to discuss how we can help you!
